Going it alone isn’t much fun and doesn’t produce results. Failure is a product of unconsciously going down the wrong path. Innovation happens from being exposed to other top professionals and upper-level managements successes. Collaboration is the cornerstone of every leader and their company’s upward direction.
The bottom line is you don’t know what you don’t know.
Masterminding began in 1727, Benjamin Franklin created Junto, a club with 12 members to debate, exchange ideas, and improve themselves.
In 1925, Napoleon Hill coined the idea of Master Mind in his book, The Law of Success. He studied the habits of successful businessmen in the 19th and 20th centuries and realized they had formed partnerships and groups to come together to learn. It was one of the keys to their success.
Today, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, Oprah Winfrey, and other billionaires meet in Sun Valley, Idaho every year for a week for networking, to talk about long-term strategies, mergers, acquisitions, and takeovers.
So, how do you develop your mastermind group? The easiest way is to find a group that exists. Highrise Networks had 19 groups and 5 industry verticals.
